FAQ about Metallized Packaging
Which print methods and inks do your metallized papers support?
Our papers can be used with a variety of conventional inks and our ink advice is also included as a standard feature for our customers and their partners.
Is metallized packaging eco-friendly?
The future of the planet concerns us all, but we know that you and your clients are often at the forefront of positive change, looking to work with eco-friendly and recyclable packaging materials. Without losing any of the final appeal, our metallized packaging is simply recyclable as paper (what we mean here is that the addition of aluminum doesn’t change the basic state of our paper, so it can be recycled as such).
How does metallized packaging help printers and converters cater to a growing demand for premium packaging?
When it comes to packaging, brands want one thing: a packaging that makes their product attractive to consumers and reinforces the quality and value of their brand and product. Metallized packaging is ideally positioned to deliver the desired looks to brands; while maintaining a paper look, metallized packaging can give packaging a real ‘wow factor’: bold, glossy looks that are eye-catching and don’t compromise on the overall quality.
Why use metallized paper for your packaging?
Metallized paper is an ideal face stock for packaging for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it is a hugely attractive face stock. Naturally glossy (and of course metallic in its look) it is eye-catching, and brands can leverage its appeal to convey a premium and high-value feel to their customers. Metallized paper also offers a premium quality face stock from a printing perspective – it runs as paper, is smooth, easy to work with and causes minimum delays on printing and converting infrastructure due to quality issues. Last (but certainly not least) it is fully recyclable – complementing brand and consumer desire to reduce or eliminate unnecessary plastics from packaging.
